Vaccine Mandate Dissenters Smeared

October 4, 2021, Southwest Airways despatched an announcement to its staff informing them that “as a result of Southwest Airways is a federal contractor,” the airline is “required to adjust to the federal government federal contractor mandate for workers to be totally vaccinated in opposition to COVID-19.”1

The next weekend, October 9 and 10, 2021, the airline was compelled to cancel some 1,800 flights. The rationale for the mass cancelations stays unclear, nevertheless.

Whereas some declare the cancellations have been attributable to a coordinated “sickout” in protest of the vaccine mandate, Southwest Airways blamed “disruptive climate” and “air visitors points” for the cancellations. Curiously, dangerous climate didn’t have the identical devastating impact on most different airways. American Airways, for instance, which is far bigger, cancelled simply 63 flights that weekend.2

The pilots’ union additionally denied involvement, saying that “our pilots are usually not collaborating in any official or unofficial job actions.”3

The timing is attention-grabbing although. Friday October 8, 2021, Southwest’s pilot union requested a Dallas, Texas, court docket to briefly block the vaccine mandate till its preexisting lawsuit4 in opposition to the corporate, filed August 30, 2021, is resolved. In keeping with the pilot union’s authorized submitting:5

“The brand new vaccine mandate unlawfully imposes new circumstances of employment and the brand new coverage threatens termination of any pilot not totally vaccinated by December 8, 2021. Southwest Airways’ further new and unilateral modification of the events’ collective bargaining settlement is in clear violation of the RLA [Railway Labor Act].”

Whereas the mass cancellations of flights certainly made life tough for many individuals, coordinated walkouts look like the one method to make our voices heard. The COVID-19 shot is way from innocent, and any blood clotting difficulty can be a transparent profession killer for pilots and flight attendants. Pilots additionally aren’t allowed to fly once they report being fatigued, and fatigue is a quite common facet impact of the jab as nicely.

Apparently, just a few weeks in the past, there was a report of a Delta pilot who had just lately obtained his second dose of the COVID jab, who died in the course of the flight. The aircraft was landed safely by the co-pilot. You may study extra particulars within the video beneath.

NBA Gamers Take a Stand

In associated information, an estimated 50 to 60 NBA gamers have refused to take the COVID jab.6 Amongst them is Kyrie Irving, who’s predicted to be sidelined from dozens of video games in the course of the 2021-2022 basketball season. As reported by USA Right this moment:7

“New York Metropolis’s vaccine mandate requires skilled athletes enjoying in public arenas to be vaccinated in opposition to COVID-19, and Irving’s vaccination standing stays unclear. Now, for the primary time, Nets coach Steve Nash is acknowledging that the workforce expects Irving to overlook house video games at Barclays Heart because of the mandate.

‘I feel we acknowledge he isn’t enjoying house video games,’ Nash advised reporters Sunday. ‘We’ll need to for certain play with out him this yr. So it simply relies on when, the place and the way a lot.’”

In early August 2021, the NBA Union had held its annual summer time assembly on-line. One of many agenda gadgets was whether or not the league workplace ought to mandate that 100% of gamers needed to get the COVID jab. Throughout the board, these in attendance stated such a mandate can be a “non-starter.” As reported by Rolling Stone journal:8

“ … unvaccinated gamers have been pushing again. They made their case to the union summit: There ought to be testing this yr, in fact, simply not throughout off-days. They’d masks up on the court docket and on the street, if they have to. However no method would they comply with a compulsory jab. The vaccine deniers had set the agenda; the gamers agreed to take their calls for for private freedom to the NBA’s negotiating desk.”

Rolling Stone additionally disparages Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac, who has refused the COVID jab on spiritual grounds:

“When NBA gamers acknowledged lining up for pictures in March, Isaac began learning Black historical past … He discovered about antibody resistance and got here to mistrust Dr. Anthony Fauci. He regarded out for individuals who would possibly die from the vaccine, and he put religion in God.

‘On the finish of the day, it’s folks,’ Isaac says of the scientists growing vaccines, ‘and you’ll’t at all times put your belief utterly in folks.’ Isaac considers un-vaxxed gamers to be vilified and bullied, and he thinks ‘it’s an injustice’ to mechanically make heroes out of vaccinated celebrities.’”9

One other participant who has spoken out in opposition to the COVID jab mandate is Golden State Warriors Draymond Inexperienced, who throughout a September 30, 2021, press convention stated he won’t stress different gamers to get vaccinated.10

He stated he believes the vaccination difficulty has grow to be a political difficulty. Within the course of, we’ve misplaced the notion that individuals’s private medical selections have to be honored. He additionally famous that the stress levied to drive folks into taking the jab is inflicting many to get suspicious. “Why are you urgent this so laborious?” he stated.

Rolling Stone Assaults Me

In one other article,11 Rolling Stone reporter Matt Sullivan takes purpose at yours really, referring to me as “the anti-vax godfather.” The article seems to be an emergency response to a tweet wherein I stated that “NBA gamers are being very brave to talk up.”12

It’s turning into obvious that the technocratic machine has one major entrance group engaged on their behalf, and that’s the Heart for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH). Regardless of being publicly outed — by Fb, nonetheless! — as a biased group that fabricates knowledge, Sullivan shamelessly refers to a “CCDH evaluation” carried out particularly for the Rolling Stones, which claims to have discovered:13

“… constantly elevated engagement on social posts in assist of vaccine-denying athletes from accounts linked to what they name The Disinformation Dozen.

The nonprofit estimated in March that this group … accounted for 73 p.c of all anti-vax content material on Fb; the social community responded by shutting down their essential accounts and penalizing their different ones, however Silicon Valley’s Covid police haven’t stopped the anti-vaxxers from re-emerging to ally themselves with celebrities.

‘The Disinformation Dozen are kind of saying, ‘They’ve received Biden, we’ve received Kyrie Irving,’ and so they’re making an attempt to see if they will use it to entry Black audiences, younger audiences and basketball followers,’ says CCDH chief govt Imram [sic] Ahmed.

‘This most cancers is looking for to copy itself in one other organ of society. The hope is that it may be contained and doesn’t metastasize from there. However the worst factor that may occur is for gamers to react to nonsense — in the event that they’re flawed, the worth is paid in life’ …

Dr. Joseph Mercola, who tops The Disinformation Dozen, tweeted his applause to greater than 325,000 followers this week for Golden State Warriors famous person Draymond Inexperienced’s rant in opposition to vaccine mandates as ‘very brave’ and for an look on Fox Information by the Orlando Magic ahead Jonathan Isaac — who advised RS that he didn’t know why vaccinated folks put on masks indoors — as ‘a refreshing voice of purpose.’14

Fb Has Refuted the CCDH Report

What Sullivan didn’t embody was the truth that Fb has publicly refuted the CCDH’s “Disinformation Dozen” report, stating that:15

“… these 12 persons are chargeable for about simply 0.05% of all views of vaccine-related content material on Fb. This consists of all vaccine-related posts they’ve shared, whether or not true or false, in addition to URLs related to these folks.

The report16 upon which the defective narrative relies analyzed solely a slender set of 483 items of content material over six weeks from solely 30 teams, a few of that are as small as 2,500 customers.

They’re under no circumstances consultant of the a whole bunch of thousands and thousands of posts that individuals have shared about COVID-19 vaccines previously months on Fb.

Additional, there is no such thing as a clarification for the way the group behind the report recognized the content material they describe as ‘anti-vax’ or how they selected the 30 teams they included of their evaluation. There isn’t any justification for his or her declare that their knowledge represent a ‘consultant pattern’ of the content material shared throughout our apps.”

Regardless of that, Sullivan continues to advertise that CCDH report as “reality” and Imran as some kind of authority on who has the best affect on social media.

Are Naturally Immune ‘Antivax’?

Sullivan emailed me just a few questions in preparation for that smear piece. Amongst these questions was whether or not I’ve “endorsed any NBA gamers looking for details about the vaccine,” and “If that’s the case, how so?” Apparently, he believes I counsel skilled athletes, which I don’t.

He additionally needed to understand how I think about these sports activities influencers to be a part of “my motion” or “my workforce,” and whether or not I imagine Irving’s defiance of the New York Metropolis vaccine mandate would rally my supporters. Right here’s my reply:

“Many of those athletes have had COVID themselves and the general public well being officers are reluctant to confess they’re proper. Pure immunity is healthier than any vaccine, which proves these mandates are usually not about immunity — they’re about compelled vaccination and management.

You’ve stated the NBA is ‘counting on science’ in a earlier article but they’re ignorant and mendacity about pure immunity — simply because the federal authorities is doing. The mandates are usually not about immunity, they’re about management and obedience.

People can assume for themselves and ought to be allowed to take action, unbiased of pharmaceutical affect, employer mandates or political authoritarians. I imagine that every particular person should totally educate themselves earlier than partaking in any medical threat taking.

Persons are smarter than they’re being given credit score for, and all people has their very own distinctive circumstances to base their selections on together with organic vulnerabilities that may make vaccine dangers better for some folks than others.

I applaud anybody who stands up in opposition to medical mandates which may negatively have an effect on their lives. It takes braveness to tackle the assaults of the media and pharmaceutical pursuits and settle for the results being compelled upon them with out their consent.

Many stadiums are filled with 80,000 folks now, with none vaccine mandates and have embraced life past the ridiculous propaganda at present controlling within the media.”

It’s Not About Well being, It’s About Management

As famous by Spencer Fernando,17 the concept that the COVID jab can be mandated and compelled on folks was rejected as loony conspiracy concept initially of the pandemic. Ditto for vaccine passports. But right here we’re.

The tempo towards tyranny is slower in america in comparison with another nations, because of our Structure, however President Biden’s try and dictate unconstitutional COVID injection mandates to personal employers throughout the nation is proof that the Structure is routinely being overstepped even right here. Some nations, like Canada and Australia, aren’t even pretending to cover the truth that it’s about social management anymore. As famous by Fernando:18

“Have you ever observed how occasions in Canada have actually moved in just one course? Compliance in any respect prices. The development has been clear: An increasing number of management, increasingly more threats of punishment, and increasingly more calls for for compliance.”

As of November 30, 2021, unvaccinated Canadians will probably be barred from planes and trains“ to make sure a minority of individuals can not sabotage Canada’s financial restoration” by spreading the virus and getting folks sick. However there’s a large gap on this rationale.

An individual with pure immunity is safer than anybody who has gotten the jab, as a result of its extra strong and offers wider safety in opposition to variants. The COVID shot doesn’t stop an infection or unfold of the virus.

If the aim have been to forestall unfold of the virus, then the one issues that might make sense can be to show you’re not contaminated or that you’re immune. Proof of vaccination can have zero impression on the unfold of the virus. You’ll simply find yourself with a vaccinated inhabitants that spreads new mutations amongst themselves.

The Energy of Pure Immunity

In a September 15, 2021, Washington Put up article, Dr. Marty Makary, professor on the Johns Hopkins Faculty of Drugs and Bloomberg Faculty of Public Well being, acknowledged:19

“It’s okay to have an incorrect scientific speculation. However when new knowledge proves it flawed, it’s a must to adapt. Sadly, many elected leaders and public well being officers have held on far too lengthy to the speculation that pure immunity presents unreliable safety in opposition to covid-19 — a rivalry that’s being quickly debunked by science.

Greater than 15 research have demonstrated the ability of immunity acquired by beforehand having the virus. A 700,000-person research from Israel two weeks in the past discovered that those that had skilled prior infections have been 27 instances much less prone to get a second symptomatic covid an infection than those that have been vaccinated.

This affirmed a June Cleveland Clinic research of health-care employees (who are sometimes uncovered to the virus), wherein none who had beforehand examined optimistic for the coronavirus received reinfected.

The research authors concluded that ‘people who’ve had SARS-CoV-2 an infection are unlikely to learn from covid-19 vaccination.’ And in Might, a Washington College research discovered that even a light covid an infection resulted in long-lasting immunity.

So, the rising science means that pure immunity is nearly as good as or higher than vaccine-induced immunity. That’s why it’s so irritating that the Biden administration has repeatedly argued that immunity conferred by vaccines is preferable to immunity attributable to pure an infection, as NIH director Francis Collins advised Fox Information host advised Bret Baier just a few weeks in the past.

That inflexible adherence to an outdated concept can be mirrored in President Biden’s latest announcement that enormous firms should require their staff to get vaccinated or undergo common testing, no matter whether or not they beforehand had the virus.”

If You Don’t Take a Stand, Who Will?

Clearly, we’re not coping with both logic, science or well being. The trouble to vaccinate the entire world, whether or not they want it or not, is about management and greed.

“Some have stated that individuals have ‘gone loopy’ throughout this disaster,” Fernando writes.20 “Nonetheless, I feel the truth is that individuals have been revealed.

A lot of folks (and almost all politicians) have demonstrated that in a disaster they panic, lose any sense of proportion, are unable to assume creatively, and double-down on the identical failed strategy over and over.

Worse than that, they’ve proven that they would favor to demonize and direct worry in the direction of others, slightly than search to take duty for their very own lives and their very own well being. Relatively than search management over themselves, they search management over others.”

Many at the moment are so locked into irrational worry, it’s nearly not possible to get them to take a look at knowledge or details. In the meantime, the political class has grown obsessive about controlling everybody, and don’t need to see or hear something which may undermine that purpose.

Consequently, these prepared to defend freedom and particular person rights look like a shrinking group. However regardless of how small that group will get, we are able to by no means give up. As famous by Fernando:21

“… it’s remnants that maintain on to values in tough moments, and supply the muse from which these values are renewed and rebuilt. That’s why we should proceed to face up in opposition to measures just like the nationwide vaccine passport, and arise for our fellow residents who’re being demonized by our pathetic and failed leaders.”

The query is how? How will we stand in opposition to the ever extra draconian guidelines being thrown at us? For starters, all of us have to cease creating wealth for the authoritarians. Meaning not donating to political campaigns that assist authoritarian leaders or shopping for merchandise or utilizing companies supplied by firms that in flip assist the elimination of our rights.

Secondly, we have to get organized. Should you work at an organization that’s threatening to implement obligatory vaccination, you possibly can coordinate a “sickout,” the place everybody calls out sick on the identical days, or another type of strike. You can even think about taking authorized motion.

In early September 2021, posted a listing of attorneys prepared to tackle vaccine damage instances and/or instances involving vaccine mandates. Since then, that webpage has been eliminated, however the checklist can nonetheless be discovered on Each day USA24.22 Authorized counsel may additionally advise you on defend your communications.
